      Beautiful thoughts to you all.
      I'm not sure what sort of counselling or support you and your wife have received, but I can recommend Doris Zagdanski's books. Doris and her husband, whom I worked with for a few years, lost one of their daughters to SIDS. I know that one of her books deals specifically with explaining death to children. This may well help with your little one's siblings. Just a thought.

      sorry to hear about your loss...
      the tex is one of the few places on the net where you can open up and not get completely torn apart.
      even with all the flaming and baiting that I do on here, I still think you are all a decent bunch of folks... ok thats enough, I'm getting all soppy.

      The Malays have a saying that the bad should be shared amongst friends to make the burden lighter.
      Please know that baby Chloe is in my thoughts & prayers and I hope that you, Fiona & the boys are well.

      It is Chloe's second birthday today - a little today harder not being able to go and visit her.
      I am sure that she would have been having a wonderful day - and most likely is wherever she is today.
      Happy Birthday Chloe! [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emgift.gif[/IMG]

      That's a damned good saying and makes perfect sense. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Hey Mick...
      my heartfelt condolences go out to you and your family....
      after having lost 3 family members in 6 years (2 last year) i have some idea of what immense pain you must feel....
      just remember she is looking down on your family and will always be watching over you guys....
      all the best
      Stay strong.....

      Mick, as a new dad, I could not even start to comprehend what it would be like to have been in your position. I really have a new level of appreciation for what you would have gone through. I need to go give my boy a cuddle now.

      I'm sorry I missed this the first time. My wife and I feel for your loss.
      Children are the most precious thing there is.
      After reading this thread I will give my nearly 16month old Chloe Hannah an extra cuddle.

      it's hard - all the best mate.
      I'm sure they're all together somewhere happily playing with a tea set and cracking up laughing at the younger boys as they fall over things.
      a day doesn't go past without thinking about them
